Married or going to be married at Grand Palladium Punta Cana?

Recommended Posts

oh really!!!!

Maybe someone should send an e-mail to another person..

I found a few contacts maybe one of you can just e-mail this person letting them know your a bride and getting married there, you've been in contact plenty with Carolina but seems no one is able to get throught to her, maybe there is another e-mail add they have for her. or another WC (that would suck if it wasn't Carolina since I am use to her lol) I'll give you a list, not sure who you should contact/

Reception Managers Punta Cana section

Miguel Nolasco <gtreceppc@fiestahotelgroup.com>

Guest Services Managers

Isyuney Peguero <acliente.puntacana@fiestahotelgroup.com>

Reservations Manager

Alberto Jiminez <gtreservas.bavaro@fiestahotelgroup.com>

Let me know how it works out!!! I can't imagine me needing to talk to you right now I'd be flipping!!!

I'm wondering if Carolina changed her email?

 

She emailed me about 2 months ago to ask for permission to use some of my wedding pics on the new Wedding website they are building for the hotel - I guess since it has become so popular in the last year

(I wish I had all you girls last year when I was planning b/c there was only one other bride married there from this forum).....I have a feeling they are making Carolina exclusively the wedding coordinator instead of spreading her thin by having her be the guest services manager as well.

 

Last year Isyuney was also a wedding coodinator so I would contact her to see if she has a new contact for Carolina or if she on vacation or something?

 

Good luck girls! That must be so frustrating! But good news for all future GP brides - a website with all the wedding options!

Hi everyone! Did anyone buy a 2nd dress for the TTD session? I'm wondering where to get mine and need to spend as little money as possible. FI are moving into our new home in January and every last penny is going into that so I'm a bit strapped for the dress. I have my actual "wedding dress" thank god, but still need something I can frolic in the waves and roll in the sand in. Let me know if there are any stores you'd recommend in Toronto or GTA. Thanks!

I just went to bridal stores, I actually found one that had some dress's 50% off so I just look through that rack, and it wasn' my fav but it was only $99 so I said what the heck, and I am so happy I did after bring it in from size 12 it looks amazing for $100. this could be an option for you. lots of dress's off the rack.

Thanks Tracy! I don't want to be left out of all this excitement! I just spent the last half hour catching up! Someone had asked about at home reception... I am planning one in June and FI really wants to have it under a tent in our yard (which is a huge property). The only problem for me would be the food. He wants us to serve hors d'oeuvres and such but we have one oven! So I like the legion idea or there is a community center on our street... maybe with a bit of decorations, this would be better? What's everyone's opinion. I would love to have people at the house but wonder if it's really feasible. Since most of my Montreal friends are not going to be at the wedding, I think we are looking at around 100 or more for the party here.

What's the consensus girls?

Ok, I'm totally freaking out. I am getting married at the Grand Palladium on Feb 20, 2010 and all of my emails to Carolina are bouncing back. I really wanted to get the final details worked out (centerpieces, chair ties, etc things I would have to buy and bring with me if I have to) and now I can't even contact her. I have 78 days til my wedding! Ok, freak out over. Whew.

Hey Dawn, we are planning on having that at home party at our home as well. The only problem is we have to have it indoors because it's a new build and we won't have a lawn yet! Originally we were thinking of bbq'ing but now I think we'll just do open bar and finger foods. I'm thinking of trying to find a caterer in the area that offers these types of platters...maybe even antipasto type platters? I think if we have the party around 7pm on a Saturday and mention on the invites that appetizers and alcohol will be served that people will eat before they come. Between moving in January and the wedding in April we're so tight on cash we just can't offer a full dinner or pay to rent out a venue.

    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
    • Getting married in 10/2020, anyone had a recent wedding here? Asking for some help
    • Hi, I know prices change year to year- Anyone have 2019 or possibly 2020 prices? 
    • My husband and I was married 18 years ago. My husband hates dressing up and truly I had no idea to that he feels embarrassed in dress attire. I told him the only way I would marry him was in tux jacket and pants shirt. Well he wore it but after wedding hyperventilating and nearly passed out. He felt totally humiliated and had horrible memories of our wedding. He has never allowed me to show our wedding photos to anyone and simply it ruined the wedding and has caused tremendous amount of issues over the years due to the fact I made him wear it. He now wants to redo the wedding to wash out our wedding memories and create new. Wants briadsmaid groomsmen everything. He wished he had simply went against my will wore something different. So wants to redo everything included everyone and what they wore but change what he wore. Me dressed in my original wedding dress. I so wish I had never posed him into a suit on our wedding day.its been 18 year nightmare.  He simply wishes to completely recreate a memory. My question is it okay to completely redo our wedding exactly the way it was except what he wears? This has been 18 years of hell he xant get over it. He cant even stand to look at photos and we have never watched the video. Thank you all Sarah 
    • Hi! How did everything turn out? I just booked mine there for next November and would love any tips you have!
